The cool bar at the Pod Restaurant in Philadelphia

The Pod Restaurant in Philadelphia is part of Stephen Starr’s restaurant empire, comprised of several high-class, highbrow locations.  This time, Starr offers a casually elegant restaurant serving up Japanese and general Asian cuisine.  The concept for the design of the space was the brain child of Manhattan’s David Rockwell.  The famous designer was influenced to create the starship-like interior of the Pod Restaurant in Philadelphia by the films “Sleeper” and “2001:  A Space Odyssey”.

Located between 36th and 37th Streets in Philadelphia’s “University City” area, Starr’s retro-modern Pod Restaurant in Philadelphia is full of happy patrons sipping traditional Japanese sake, nursing a beer, and savoring rainbow-colored cocktails.  Guests can nibble on delicious appetizers and entrees such as fresh sushi, dim sum, and other savory Pan-Asian offerings served up in style by executive chefs Michael Schulson, Hiroyuki Zama Tanaka, and Erik Preston and their highly capable, well-trained team.

Boasting such amenities as a full bar, available counter seating, and take-out or late night cuisine, the Pod Restaurant in Philadelphia can accommodate almost any desire.  Call ahead for fabulous private banquet facilities, available for anywhere from 12 to 50 people.  Banquet dining is offered with a prix fixe menu.  Valet parking is available seven days a week, but several privately owned parking lots are also open for self-service parking within the area.

The Pod Restaurant in Philadelphia is open Monday through Thursday from 11:30am until 11:00pm, Friday from 11:30am until 12:00am, Saturday from 4:00pm until 12:00am, and Sunday from 4:00pm until 10:00pm.  Most major credit cards are accepted, including American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard, and Visa.  Prices per person typically range from approximately $31.00 to $50.00, so your pocketbook won’t be left thin or empty.  The Pod Restaurant in Philadelphia is sure to be a dining experience you won’t soon forget.
